York is beautiful, want to be there.

I just loved this exercise. It was amazing. I got some information about York history and I have learned english grammar

it's the first time i hear about York and i really would like to visit it one day !!
but Ashly said when they arrived to the museum " the smell is pretty bad " is " pretty " here means " too much ? "
Thank you so much!

Hello Kominam,
York is a fascinating place with so much history - Roman, Viking, Medieval and more, and it has some great museums too.  I hope you get your wish and visit it some day!
The word 'pretty' here means something between 'very' and 'quite'.  It's a very common use of the word in modern English.  For example:
'It's a pretty good film' = 'It's quite a good film'
I hope that clarifies it for you.
Best wishes,

Does 'so' mean 'same way' in this sentence, "I'm afraid so" said by the man? It is a bit strange for me to use 'so' like this.
Thank you very much.

it's really wonderful, this is the first time that I have accessed to this site and find it very interesting, thank you so much for your work, the learnEnglish team.
